I hope you and your families had a refreshing holiday and are enjoying the snowy winter weather so far this January.
Ottawa 2017 kicks off!
I know many of you got out to celebrate the Ottawa 2017 opening ceremonies. It is going to be quite a sesquicentennial year of events, which will include Red Bull Crashed Ice, the Juno Awards, La Machine, and the 105th Grey Cup. 2017 will be an exciting time to be in Ottawa and we hope you invite friends and family to visit and enjoy your city with you!
On Sunday, January 22nd from 11 am to 12 pm, join me for the Kanata Nordic Snow Day at Wesley Clover Parks. This year I will be racing Paralympian Robbi Wells and some younger members of the ski club in a snowshoe challenge. The whole family can participate in a variety of free outdoor activities including - snowshoe rentals, cross-country skiing, and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
I also want to take this opportunity to wish all those celebrating, a Happy Chinese New Year (the year of the Rooster)!
We have already experienced a heavy amount of snow so far and I know our teams have been working diligently to keep up with it. However, our snow removal will never be flawless. Residents can help by phoning 3-1-1 or visiting Ottawa.ca to let us know about problem areas to redirect our efforts to.
You can always find more details about upcoming events and activities in Bay Ward and across Ottawa by following me on Twitter and Facebook or by subscribing to updates at www.BayWardLive.ca. Should you ever need the assistance of my team please do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to help.
Best wishes for January and please keep in touch!
